Re: [METHADONIA ] Re: Steph's "survey" & why can't treatment cost the same in the "good oleU.S.A"?
- Dr. Hayes in Baltimore charges $40 a mo for ea office visit and .35cents for each 40mg plus $6 u/a
so the avg. visit is around $80 a mo and everyone that is a patient picks up 1x a month

Hi MO, Actually, it isn't my survey. It is Oats survey...I just
I agree with you.....it is outrageous the way some of these clinics
take advantage of patients. I am extremely fortunate, since I pay
only $29.00 a MONTH. AND, that fee will be going down, since I now
have a 2 week pick up. I cannot understand how these clinics justify
charging some of their prices, especially since the methadone itself,
it so cheap(pricewise).
Take care, Stephanie
